Just for fun, doing this Triclops for a monster film festival trailer. 3 eyes, 3 horns. Also had to make a few basic buildup 1:24 puppets for him to chomp on. A couple will be modified to match live people who have also been shot greenscreen, yelling and waving arms about a lot.

That is awesome!

So how did you make this guy? Build-up with latex skin?

Angus - the triclops is cast in foam latex from a plaster mould. Claws, horns and tusks are quick setting epoxy putty.

Greyguy - yes, post a photo of your puppet!

Truly awesome! This is so great especially fighting the praying mantas!

I wish it don't chomp the boy with black singlet and jeans, he's so nice!

Thanks Marina - I didn't use him so he is not chomped! We dispatched 5 of the mini figures, in different ways. He can appear in one of my 1:24 scale sets in the future.
We finished the fight scene yesterday - Alex made a plasticine stunt head for the mantis that could be animated getting smashed with the Triclops' club, with wallpaper paste goo squishing out. So my contribution to the monsterfest trailer is done. It will take another 3 weeks for the director to put all the elements together I think.
